Hayes Valley Meritage Red Blend
|Region||California, Central Coast|
The Hayes Valley Meritage is a true homage to the traditional blends that are crafted in the Bordeaux region of France. The Bordeaux region of France is well known for its cooler climate and often overcast and muggy summers. The Central Coast lends itself to a cooler climate and dreary foggy mornings. This gives the Bordeaux varietals a chance to develop much more intense and complex flavors that you won't find in a hotter climate style of blend. Flavors and aromas of mushroom and slate coupled with black fruits and a mild tannin structure, mimic the idealistic style that comes from one of the best wine grape growing regions in the world.
